Children and Anxiety: Free Workshop for Families with Young Children.

Children and Anxiety: a free workshop for families with young children with Sean Larsen, Child and Youth Mental Health Clinician. 

We all experience anxiety.  Let’s talk about when anxiety is helpful and when it is problematic.  Discuss where anxiety comes from, how it works in the body and the brain, and why it is essential.  Discover how anxiety changes with age and varies among children.  Sean will share practical tools to help manage problematic anxiety. Join us for this engaging conversation, filled with stories and humour.
